Beside launching the new JULO credit digital, JULO encourages Indonesians to be empowered in achieving life goals. The empowerment project started by inviting audiences to share their salutation to their surroundings on social media. This invitation is well appreciated by the public with more than 100 participants taking part in this campaign and posting their salutes across platforms. One of the participant @dr**ny gave her salutation to teachers and tweeted "Salute to teachers who take online teaching to a whole new level. You guys are my inspiration. #HidupkanHidupmu (#LiveYourLife)".
Head of Marketing JULO, Mikhal Anindita states, "It's great to see the enthusiasm and participation in Hidupkan Hidupmu campaign. Through this campaign, JULO wants to share appreciation to everyone who aspires to move forward and fulfill their life. In this unideal pandemic period, we really need the positive vibes to empower ourselves to conquer life challenges that we face."
As one of the biggest developing countries worldwide, the 40% financial literacy rate in Indonesia has become a challenge to financial practitioners (OJK Financial Literacy Survey, 2020). One of the renowned financial literacy platforms, Overheard Keuangan shares his agreement. "Majority of Indonesians have a lack of understanding in utilizing credit facilities. Many of them were trapped into consumptive habits. In reality credit facilities can be beneficial when used wisely where it could eventually stimulate Indonesia economic growth altogether. My salute goes to JULO who is committed to boost financial literacy besides doing its business." adds the content creator.
To date, 70% of JULO digital credit loans have been used for life improvement, such as business capital, house renovation, healthcare and education purposes. JULO believes product transformation to digital credit combined with continuous financial education would enable customers to use the digital credit product effectively and eventually customers could empower themselves to live their life to the fullest.
